The Center for Teaching & Learning wants you to get into the spirit of March Madness, student retention style! Starting in March, we will post a challenge on Twitter and Facebook for you to conquer in your class that week related to communicating with your students. Be sure to comment on the weekly challenge post once you’ve completed the task! Complete the challenges (on the honor system) to earn bragging rights, have your name listed on the CTL Website as a Student Retention through Communication All Star, a chance to be featured in a guest post, and win some CTL swag! Let’s help all of our students be winners in our classes!
Are you up for the challenge?
Challenge 2: Reach out to students that are struggling.
As we head into spring break, this is a great opportunity to reach out individually to students that are struggling or not participating. Share one or two things that they can work on over the break to catch up or encourage them to schedule a meeting with you. From the People or Grades page, simply click the student’s name to open the student context card and then click the message (envelope) icon to send them a personalized message.
